The process takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the number and severity of the chips. Bring your automobile by our shop and we can evaluate the damage and give you an estimated time and cost to fix it.
- Free. With qualifying insurance. Not covered by insurance? We take “customer pay” as well.
- Prevent replacement. All repairs we perform are guaranteed not to “spread.”
- Keep your factory glass. Replacement windshields are never as clear as OEM glass.
- Repair will not raise premiums. Unless you have a bizarre frequency of windshield repairs, a “normal” number of repairs will not raise your insurance payemnts.
Statistics show that policyholders save their insurance companies millions of dollars each year by having their windshields repaired instead of replaced. If your windshield has a rock chip and you don’t repair it now, the chip could spread causing a large crack and cost you, and your insurance company, hundreds of dollars to replace. However, by choosing to repair your windshield, you actually keep your premiums from increasing. Most insurance companies will waive your deductible and pay the entire cost of your repair!
